@2ndNewMoon @ClarkeMicah @bellingcat @LapCat @aaronjmate @bbclysedoucet @NikGowing @OborneTweets @PeterCronau @TulsiGabbard @SusanSarandon @Tim_Hayward_ @PhilipWatson_ 1) @bellingcat were caught deleting a tweet which confirmed the cylinder at location 2 was manipulated by activists/SCD shortly after the alleged attack. See @MichaKobs discussion here
@2ndNewMoon @ClarkeMicah @bellingcat @LapCat @aaronjmate @bbclysedoucet @NikGowing @OborneTweets @PeterCronau @TulsiGabbard @SusanSarandon @Tim_Hayward_ @PhilipWatson_ @MichaKobs 2) the deleted tweet confirms that the cylinder was rotated through 180 degrees, so that a small dent in the cylinder lined up with a steel bar in the roof and tilting the cylinder so that the nozzle was pointing into a hole in the roof.
@2ndNewMoon @ClarkeMicah @bellingcat @LapCat @aaronjmate @bbclysedoucet @NikGowing @OborneTweets @PeterCronau @TulsiGabbard @SusanSarandon @Tim_Hayward_ @PhilipWatson_ @MichaKobs 3) This manipulation corroborates an engineering report, suppressed by OPCW management and concerns raised in the original interim report (also suppressed by @opcw) wikileaks.org/opcw-douma/doc…
@2ndNewMoon @ClarkeMicah @bellingcat @LapCat @aaronjmate @bbclysedoucet @NikGowing @OborneTweets @PeterCronau @TulsiGabbard @SusanSarandon @Tim_Hayward_ @PhilipWatson_ @MichaKobs @OPCW 4) location 2 is also the place at which approx. 40 civilians were found dead here. It is claimed they were killed, almost instantly, by chorine gas coming from the cylinder on the roof.
@2ndNewMoon @ClarkeMicah @bellingcat @LapCat @aaronjmate @bbclysedoucet @NikGowing @OborneTweets @PeterCronau @TulsiGabbard @SusanSarandon @Tim_Hayward_ @PhilipWatson_ @MichaKobs @OPCW 5) In yet another suppressed report, NATO chemical weapon experts advised that the deceased were not killed by chlorine gas
@2ndNewMoon @ClarkeMicah @bellingcat @LapCat @aaronjmate @bbclysedoucet @NikGowing @OborneTweets @PeterCronau @TulsiGabbard @SusanSarandon @Tim_Hayward_ @PhilipWatson_ @MichaKobs @OPCW 6) and @bbc producer @Dalatrm states he has evidence the hospital scenes (circa 7pm) associated with the events at location 2 (circa 7pm or shortly afterwards) were staged. . He refuses to pass this information even to the OPCW.
@2ndNewMoon @ClarkeMicah @bellingcat @LapCat @aaronjmate @bbclysedoucet @NikGowing @OborneTweets @PeterCronau @TulsiGabbard @SusanSarandon @Tim_Hayward_ @PhilipWatson_ @MichaKobs @OPCW @BBC @Dalatrm 7) To even the most casual of observers, this combination of facts should ring alarm bells. A discussion of the evidence can be found here syriapropagandamedia.org/wpcontent/uplo…, given at the invitation of leading chemical weapons expert Julian Perry Robinson theguardian.com/world/2020/may…
@2ndNewMoon @ClarkeMicah @bellingcat @LapCat @aaronjmate @bbclysedoucet @NikGowing @OborneTweets @PeterCronau @TulsiGabbard @SusanSarandon @Tim_Hayward_ @PhilipWatson_ @MichaKobs @OPCW @BBC @Dalatrm 8) @bellingcat have systematically sought to smear those questioning what happened at Douma and last week were caught out publishing disinformation from persons within the OPCW.
@2ndNewMoon @ClarkeMicah @bellingcat @LapCat @aaronjmate @bbclysedoucet @NikGowing @OborneTweets @PeterCronau @TulsiGabbard @SusanSarandon @Tim_Hayward_ @PhilipWatson_ @MichaKobs @OPCW @BBC @Dalatrm 9) This disinformation was used to smear an one of the OPCW's most experienced scientists and, it appears, to mislead the Director General himself @RealDeeptiC @opcw
@2ndNewMoon @ClarkeMicah @bellingcat @LapCat @aaronjmate @bbclysedoucet @NikGowing @OborneTweets @PeterCronau @TulsiGabbard @SusanSarandon @Tim_Hayward_ @PhilipWatson_ @MichaKobs @OPCW @BBC @Dalatrm @RealDeeptiC 10) The deception perpetrated by @bellingcat this last week, and its role as part of a broader propaganda operation regarding the OPCW and Syria, should now be investigated by those media organisations partnering with @bellingcat including @SkyNews, @guardian @derspiegel
@2ndNewMoon @ClarkeMicah @bellingcat @LapCat @aaronjmate @bbclysedoucet @NikGowing @OborneTweets @PeterCronau @TulsiGabbard @SusanSarandon @Tim_Hayward_ @PhilipWatson_ @MichaKobs @OPCW @BBC @Dalatrm @RealDeeptiC @SkyNews @guardian @derspiegel 11) Involvement in the cover up of these deaths, witting or unwitting, will likely lead to criminal prosecution. This applies both to those within the @opcw involved in suppression of evidence and other actors including propagandists such as @bellingcat.

@georgemonbiot 's accusation of atrocity denial and truth distortion' by @ClarkeMicah is misleading. In fact, it is Monbiot who has consistently ignored extensive evidence that challenges his beliefs regarding alleged chemical weapon attacks in Syria. This evidence includes:-
1) the @couragefound panel which heard testimony from an OPCW official regarding procedural and scientific fraud during the @opcw 's investigation of the alleged chlorine chemical weapon attack in Douma, 2018:- couragefound.org/2019/10/opcw-p… @Tim_Hayward_ @2ndNewMoon
2) Leaked documents have confirmed that OPCW inspectors had their analyses censored and suppressed in order to ensure the final report reached a 'preordained conclusion' wikileaks.org/opcw-douma/#OP…

@MaxBlumenthal @L_Gale517 @MaxAbrahms Interesting. @James__Harkin wrote an article on Douma for @theintercept , one which suggested an attack had occurred but was surrounded by much propaganda. @Dalatrm concurred and claimed the hospital scene were staged:-
@MaxBlumenthal @L_Gale517 @MaxAbrahms @James__Harkin @theintercept @Dalatrm 1) @James__Harkin also chaired the @cijournalism debate between @EliotHiggins and Professor Postol whilst @weizman_eyal & @ForensicArchi provided technical support to Higgins in that debate: hiddensyria.com/2020/03/06/for…

A key question now concerns why individuals within the OPCW are leaking false information designed to smear one of their inspectors? And why is this being leaked to @bellingcat, a state-sponsored propaganda outlet? @RealDeeptiC @ClarkeMicah @PeterCronau @johnpilger @SMaurizi
1) We know from @MichaKobs' investigation that @bellingcat were in communication with individuals manipulating a yellow cylinder at location 2 in Douma:-
2) Remarkably, this manipulation involved the rotation of the cylinder through 180 degrees, lining up a dent with a rebar, and then tilting it so that the nozzle is pointing into the hole.

Rather than addressing substantive issues raised by many regarding their investigation of the alleged chemical weapon attack in Douma, Syria, the @opcw has responded by leaking a letter from its DG, Fernando Arias, & revealing the identify of one of its scientists. @RealDeeptiC
1) Remarkably the @opcw has chosen to leak this information to @bellingcat, a well-known state sponsored propaganda outlet. Interestingly @bellingcat was in communication with individuals manipulating the alleged crime scene at location 2 in Douma:
2)@EliotHiggins is well known for his abusive behaviour whilst @bellingcat conspired with @ForensicArchi and @cijournalism to rig a public debate between Higgins and eminent US scientist Ted Postol (report forthcoming) @James__Harkin @weizman_eyal see also hiddensyria.com/2020/03/06/for…

One year ago today, the Courage Foundation Panel received testimony from an OPCW official detailing fraud and deception during the organisation's investigation of the alleged chemical weapon attack in Douma, Syria: couragefound.org/2019/10/opcw-p…
1) The panel learned many important facts about how information had been suppressed in order to reach 'a preordained conclusion'. The panel included many eminent figures, including the OPCW first Director General Jose Bustani, and has been supported by many more:
2)Within the last two week, although blocked by the US, US and France, Bustani issued a statement to the UN Security Council based upon what he had learned: couragefound.org/2020/10/ex-opc…

@malachybrowne @MaxBlumenthal Dear Mr Browne, would you like to comment on this communication from a senior OPCW official:-
@malachybrowne @MaxBlumenthal 1) Would you also like to comment on why you think this toxicology assessment, from NATO experts, was suppressed in the Final Douma Report?
@malachybrowne @MaxBlumenthal 2) The attached tweet confirms that the cylinder at Location 2 was manipulated and that those doing this were in communication with Bellingcat:- . Any comment
